FANTASTIC CARING DOCTOR

Dr. Pepe came highly recommended to me. I am (or was) a patient of Dr. Pepe's at Beachside Family Practice. I say "was", because she recently left the practice. I think that there was not really enough business there for her to stay, and she said she was going back to the South Pacific, and already had a job lined up on some island there. Anyway, whenever I was there, no matter what the problem was, she would take her time in taking my history, then thoroughly examine me, and come to a diagnosis. Yes, she had to sit at a computer with her back towards me to do her "charting", but she always spoke to me facing me, even to the point of asking me to sit in a chair turned so that when she was typing, she and I had eye contact. She addressed all my concerns in full, and then suggested a treatment plan. She always made sure that I understood what she was saying, and always made sure that she understood what I was saying. My husband sees her as well, and he loves the care she gives me, as well as himself. And he doesn't like doctors. Now that she has left, I think that my husband and I will find another practice, as there are a few that are closer to my house.

No thank you

Dr. Pepe was in the middle of treating me for a uti, when I passed out in her office. This has happened to me before, so I was not intensely freaked out when I woke up, but I was a little displeased to here dr. Pepe complaining to the emts that I kept "falling asleep" while she was asking me questions. When the emt asked what the doctor thinks it might be she replied "anxiety..that's her whole thing." This wasnt the first time I've seen doctor pepe but it was the last. Every experience I've had in her office was unpleasant and she was always very dismissive of me in all of my visits.

Office no longer open, but I was her patient for 20 years

I read some of these comments and my blood just boiled, and I felt I had to write "a rebuttal". While Dr. Pepe no longer has her private office in Indialantic (she decided to practice on Guam), I had been her patient for 20 years. Actually, I first went to see her in Volusia County at her small practice there. When she moved her practice to Indialantic, FL, I drove down there to see her. And by the way, Dr. Pepe IS Board Certified in Family Practice. The office was very cute, with a Bahamian theme. You felt as if you were in someone's living room, not in a cold sterile-appearing office. At the same time, Dr. Pepe had state of the art medical equipment, and the office was immaculately clean. Dr. Pepe is caring, down to earth, LISTENS TO YOU, fully reviews your medical records, and yes, tells you that if you do not take your medications your blood pressure, or diabetes, or heart failure will not improve and that you will actually get heart, liver, or kidney failure because of it. She tells it like it is. She often ran late on her schedule, because she gave each patient the amount of time that patient needed, even though the insurance companies would not pay her for the amount of time she took, because according to the insurance companies, if you have a urinary tract infection, it should take less than 15 minutes, and they would not pay for the Doc to discuss other problems and refill unrelated medications, but she did. At the same time, she is compassionate and caring of her patients, even when they are in the hospital for something that she does not do, such as remove your gallbladder. And she does it because she cares about you. She doesn't get paid for this. Dr. Pepe also treats you within your belief system, which means that if you want to try acupuncture for your blood pressure, she agrees to a "trial of acupuncture" for 6 weeks (the same amount of time she would wait to see if your blood pressure medications were working), and then go from there. The idiots who stated that her office was a shambles and filthy, and that she was unkempt "not even running a comb through her hair" were obviously people unsatisfied because she was not an Oxycontin pusher like other doctors. Another one complained about "talking about financial troubles" was probably one of those many freeloaders who either didn't want to pay their stupid $20 co-payment (and it all adds up to a lot of money if people didn't pay it) or they claimed they had insurance, but lied about it, and threw a hissy-fit when told what they owed for an hour's office visit, even after the receptionist had been on the phone with the insurance company for over an hour, trying to get their insurance verified. Yes, the Doc had one dog, occasionally 2 dogs in her office, but they were registered THERAPY DOGS, and many of the patients, especially those with special needs and the elderly. If someone was afraid or allergic to dogs, they would go into the receptionist's office, and not interact with the patients. All in all, you can see that I am / was a VERY happy and satisfied patient, because I drove over an hour and a half to see her every three months or more frequently when needed. Dr. Pepe is GREAT !!!

Unorthodox, but not as horrific as people are rating her

Dr. Pepe might be a left over hippie, but she is clean individual with slightly frizzy hair. Her daughter brings the baby to work sometimes, but I have NEVER had any of the staff be rude to me, and there is never trouble finding my files or getting my payment taken care of. The fact that she runs an old office is not her fault, although I agree that it could be freshened up a little. But no needle, stethescope, exam table cover, or anything else ever used on me has been dirty - and I am a pretty anal 28 year old. YES, she does sometimes so a foster-care program out of her office for dogs - something involving a wellness/health dog companionship thing. The dog does not have to come in the patient room or anywhere else if you ask though. To be honest - the reason I go to Dr. Pepe is the same reason another reviewer wrote - she is THERE for you. Be it late appointnment, or emergency need - she listens, diagnoses properly, and makes sure you are taken care of. She looks up all medicines to see what generics are offered, and what won't interfere with your other Rx's. I forgot my checkbook once, no problem, she knew I was good for it, and I put the co-pay in the mail the next day. She is not everyone's cup of tea, as she is unorthodox and her business is laid back...normally I wouldn't care for that kind of Dr.... BUT Dr. Pepe does not have a cold steel atmosphere, and I prefer that - cause she is not a cold steel Dr!
